Look Good in Pictures.

October 29, 2008

Ok, all… I’m putting myself out here! There is a reason I stay behind the camera, but how could I pass up such a wonderful opportunity to work with Nikon and Carson Kressley on the new how-to series “Look Good in Pictures” ? I was totally out out my element, but Carson’s wit and humor put me at ease. As of now, the segment on babies is up (see link above).

Mr. Cayden was a perfect little model, so full of smiles even though it was nap time during the taping.

Coming soon will be a segment on newborns, featuring another smiley boy, Emerick!

And… how lucky am I to have had such a gorgeous Mom-to-be for the maternity segment?

And… a family portrait isn’t complete without Carson!!

I would like to thank all my wonderful models for spending an entire day with us to make this happen! And to Carson… for making me laugh so I didn’t appear *too* nervous! What a fantastic crew! © carrie sandoval | photographer
